Tasnim News – Foreign Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif will travel to Indonesia on Sunday, a spokesperson said.
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh said the top Iranian diplomat is going to hold talks with senior Indonesian officials about Tehran-Jakarta relations and other issues of mutual interest during the trip.
Last week, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said Tehran was proceeding with efforts for the release of an Iranian oil tanker that was seized in Indonesian waters in January.
Indonesia’s coast guard seized the Iranian-flagged MT Horse and the Panamanian-flagged MT Freya vessels over suspected illegal oil transfer in the country’s waters on January 24.
Indonesia’s coast guard spokesman claimed the two tankers concealed their identity by not showing their national flags, turning off automatic identification systems and did not respond to a radio call.
